Delayed by 30 minutes....then the crew preboarded a sick lady and her travel companion. At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane. Then we didn’t have any ground crew to get us off loading ramp. Finally got away 90 minutes or more after scheduled departure. Circled LA a few times before getting to land.... long flight with long delays!"

Pros: "Friendly crew."

Cons: "Both flights were a half hour late in taking off, and arrival."

Cons: "I dislike that westjet tried to get me to pay for my seats when I initially bought the ticket, only to discover later that the seats are free if I choose them at check in. I didn’t pay the seat charge but there is a breach of trust in them trying to con me that makes me not want to fly with them again."

Cons: "Generally announcemect is too fast and not clear, especially the boarding anouncement regarding the order of boarding is not clear. Please be more considerate for the aged and hard of hearing, infrequent traveller."

Cons: "No entertainment center on plane"

Pros: "Not cold, not noisy aircraft"

Cons: "Appalled that I was approached by two flight attendants separately to turn off my light in order to accommodate another passenger as the light was bothering them on a night flight. I pay premium pricing for the Plus seat so I have extra room to work. I chose not to turn off light in order to work, then flight attendants allowed the passenger to approach me. Really unacceptable to put me in uncomfortable interaction, making me play bad cop. I was sitting behind passengers talking loudly who were using profanity. My solution? Earphones. This is a commercial flight - offer passengers eye covers, some solution, or tell them to deal with it, or tell them to charter a private plane. Don’t tell us to sacrifice what we pay for, because you can’t do your job. Lost a loyal customer."

Pros: "I upgraded and that was definitely worth it."
Cons: "I don't like 2.5 hour flights in general. Just long enough to be annoying. But that has nothing to do with you and your airline."

Pros: "It was a relatively short flight, 2 hours."
Cons: "Noisy from group of kids and young women and a sick passenger sitting next to us."

Pros: "The plane was nice and the pilots also cared about being on time."
Cons: "A couple checked their bags and for some reason ended up not flying with us. So the airline staff spent an hour searching for the bags and delaying the flight as everyone sat on board the plane. No entertainment was available on the plane and the flight attendants were also quite rude. This review is coming from someone who rarely complains or gets mad. If you have the opportunity to fly another airline, I would recommend it."

Pros: "Flight on time and friendly service."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and took another 45 min to leave once boarding was complete"

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Small seats. Nonexistent food and entertainment option are all self provided"

Cons: "Being late into LA"

Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I travel on plus and the person who was in charge of our sección was very nice and friendly."
Cons: "what i don't like is that i had to wait for my luggage an hour . causin incomvinience for me later."

Cons: "Hi, Pliz sort out the menu,the food was rubbish."

Pros: "Love the Airbus, roomy."
Cons: "Better entertainment movies, food are boring."

Cons: "Just not enough room in the economy class, especially when the person in front reclines their seat."

Cons: "Free snack and tea and coffee"

Pros: "Plane changed to an A380"
Cons: "Waited over half an hour to get off at Heathrow owing to staff shortage so the air bridge took a while to happen!"

Pros: "The service in the Business Class section on British Airways was phenomenal"

Cons: "It was extremely cold on the flight. I asked two different crew members to please turn the A/C down and nothing. I had 3 sweaters on and double socks, two blankets and it was still cold!! The worst"

Cons: "Despite a 5 hour layover for our connection, one of our checked bags was left in London by British Airlines. Other bags made it. Makes no sense."

Cons: "Luggage arrived 2 days late."

Pros: "Plane was much more comfortable than the old AA plane we flew to Lisbon. Crew was excellent. First meal was good. I was in window seat, and enjoyed the side bin with also gave armrest space."
Cons: "Second meal of "hot pocket" type of thing was poor. Plan took off late due to security checks"

Pros: "The Heathrow terminal, Amazing. Why does everyone in window seats keep all the window shades closed -- throughout the entire flight? It was daylight and beautiful outside. Are they all vampires? Why did my overhead light shine on the seat next to mine? Never mind... the flight was fine. Nothing to shout about, except for what I wrote in the next "What I didn't like" box...."
Cons: "I was assigned a window seat. I asked an agent if I could get an isle seat because I am a little claustrophobic. She said yes, and gave me 24D. Great, but I was annoyed and upset that she did not warn me that it was a front seat, with now place to put my personal bag. The wife of the guy next to me was 10 seats away, so I found an isle seat at the back of the aircraft and moved, so she could be with her husband. It all worked out okay, but the agent should have been more informative and have offered the option of that rear seat. It's not nice to be sneaky."

Pros: "Love your airline nothing"

Pros: "The flight crew was amazing. The entertainment system was great"
Cons: "Landed almost an hour late. Food was HORRIBLE. worst pasta of my life. The crew while kind, we busy chatting in the galley most of the flight. Never came around (besides the initial drink cart and the meal) to offer water or check on passengers. They forced me to close the window while we were flying and I bought a window seat so i could look out. The boarding process was very slow and disembarking took ages. Problems with loading the baggage led to an issue at baggage claim where they were stuck."

Pros: "Entertainment was adequate."
Cons: "The plane was freezing for 11 hours. Flight attendant said it would be adjusted but it never was. We were against a wall and seats did not recline. Very little room."

Cons: "I purchased a business class seat, fully paid six months in advance. There was a last minute change in the type of aircraft, I was downgraded to economy plus. BA never tried to contact me in advance or gilve me any other options. It was a nasty surprise but I had no other choice."

Pros: "The A-380 is outstanding. Seats are good, even in economy. Entertainment system is great."
Cons: "It seems to me that boarding by Groups has not helped in the least bit, instead it has made things slower. It's bad enough that the charges and limitations on luggage have forced everyone to try to board with their suitcases... The group system just makes things worse. I recommend BA compares itself to Lufthansa, Swiss, Qatar, Thai, whatever, and avoid trying to match Easyjet and American Airlines on service levels. Oh, and there is no excuse for long delays and cancellations in the most important airport in Europe. At least not for a simple dusting of snow."

Pros: "Able to stretch legs."
Cons: "Quality of food served London to Los Angeles needs to be taken to a higher level."

Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Awful (typically BA) configuration im Club World on a 787 - cramped, inadequate storage, just lacking essential comfort for a supposed premium class. Food: seriously, I've had better in student cafes. Just stop it BA - its like some kind of prison food. Entertainment: meh. Small selection of new release movies. Crew: with the exception of one - just one from a complement of 15 odd - of the crew, the rest were a surly, inhospitable miserable bunch. If you hate your job don't take it out on customers - especially in a service industry."

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Late catering delayed flight. Fix ground services."

Cons: "It is difficult to get in and out of chair. I wish the chair handle would be moved up . Every time I needed to go to bathroom , I hurt myself."

Cons: "A couple of mishaps by the crew with no acknowledgement. One of the flight attendants dropped an empty soda can on the floor which was dropped on my toes (I had taken my shoes off) and picked it up with no acknowledgement or apology, even after I screamed out of pain. I was speechless that I didn't even object. In another incident, when asked for food option, I chose chicken vs pasta. When opened my hot plate after 2-3 minutes, I found out I had tofu in front of me. I called the flight attendant and they came over, acknowledged I had the wrong food just to inform me they were out of chicken at that point. If you make a mistake, please offer something in return to make the experience somewhat better."

Pros: "A direct flight from SD to London."
Cons: "I have been using this direct flight since they restarted the route a few years ago. Standards seem to be slipping. For this flight we were not offered champagne at the beginning of the flight and the meal and "breakfast" were very meager, with small portions."

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "no dairy free food options"

Pros: "I loved the side compartment next to my seat in the upper deck of the airbus. This was an amazing airplane to fly in and I hope someday to afford the opportunity to experience First class. The cabin crew was very attentive and our attendant, in particular, was helpful. He made sure that we had our special meal and the whole staff was very attentive."

Cons: "I didn't like the no wifi on the planes and that you couldn't upgrade at the gate like you can with many other airlines."

Pros: "The crew had to deal with a medical emergency and they were excellent!! Despite extra pressure they kept us all informed and were polite and friendly under pressure!"
Cons: "lack of seat space and could not put seat back because of medical emergency so hard to sleep. Exhausted on arrival at Heathrow! Headset did not work properly on films Did not like the boarding process !!"

Pros: "The crew and entertainment was great on this flight! Other than that, it is kind of hard to find positives."
Cons: "We were delayed by 30 minutes for whatever reason and then we were trapped in the air for 11 hours in tiny seats. The seat wasn't very comfortable and I didn't have much room to sit and for my legs. I had a stupid box under the seat in front of me with airplane stuff in it I guess, so that took up some room under the seat in front of me. I had my legs stretched in the aisle most of the flight. The food wasn't great, but what airline food is good? I was really expecting this aircraft to be like the Dream Liner, but overall it was just a big tin can in the sky."

Cons: "Staff where very rude. I asked if me and my partner could move as the person in front had there seat back therefore my knees got damaged and grazed they simply said we can't move you and left I asked a number of times I was ignored"

Pros: "Excellent service and the crew was very friendly"

Pros: "In flight entertainment, food and everyone was great!"
Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "Good see selection for food and entertainment. Chicken curry was tasty. Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Not enough leg room or reclining space for such a long flight. Viewing screens are too close to face for comfort... especially for people with older eyes. Focal distance is farther away."

Cons: "Please fix the boarding process."

Pros: "Landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Baggage did not arrive as was not put on flight at San Jose despite checking it in 2.5 hours before flight"

Pros: "The food was good and the flight attendants were attentive, especially considering the number of passengers. Overall, British Airways does a much better job than most American airlines."
Cons: "As with most airlines, the seats were cramped, especially when the person in front of me reclined their seat."

Cons: "Space for legs"

Pros: "The flight crew worked really hard on this flight and it seemed like they had very few breaks or down time. The entertainment was great, it made my flight seem shorter than it really was."

Cons: "It never happened as I was rerouted through Dallas/Fort Worth"

Pros: "Long flight but free personal entertainment screens and free food breakfast, lunch dinner and snack. Free wine with the dinner"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Great service and good food."

Pros: "Great movie selection! Really good...."
Cons: "I'm 5.10 so seats are much worse for me because of long legs! Especially on a long flight :("

Pros: "I loved everything about the trip. From the aircraft to the crew. Jaime (flight attendant) became like a friend on that trip. I will use British Airways for every flight to Europe going forward."

Pros: "Across to entertainment helped pass the time"
Cons: "On an 11 + hour flight it's extremely difficult if not impossible to get any sleep when you can barely move your seat back. Try removing some seats ...yes, I know impossible"

Cons: "OVERALL EXPERIENCE WITH BRITISH AIRLINES...WILL FLY WITH DIFFERENT CARRIER NEXT TIME..."

Pros: "staff were good"

Pros: "Food was decent as was entertainment. Pretty new aircraft and lavatories were clean throughout flight."

Pros: "Mostly everything except for the entertainment, which on my previous travels with you entertainment was good. Crew and ground staff have so far always been nice."
Cons: "Selection of movies weren't so good. Been having trouble with the online checking when coming from England to LA"

Pros: "I liked the extra compartment and arm rest by the window seat."
Cons: "The crew wasn't too observant. I had my blinker button on for 40 minutes because I realized I was never given a headphone to watch tv. As I patiently waited, I saw the flight attendants in the back doing nothing but chatting. So I tried clicking again in hopes they would head and come to assist me. But nothing. So I had to hail one over for headphones. They also kept the curtains open the entire flight even though people were trying to sleep. I had to put a jacket over my face to block the light and so did the person sitting next to me."

Pros: "Not a darn thing."
Cons: "The flights at Heathrow had been delayed all day, according to the pilot from Paris to London. Well all except the connection that I missed due to a lot of slow moving people and delayed take off. So I was directed to stand in the rebooking line to get on another flight. I stood in that line for over 6 hours! Once i finally reached the counter, I was told the next available flight wasnt until the next day, and that I would be put up in a hotel for the night. The hotel was an hour bus ride away (which I had to pay for), and my arrival at the Hotel was too late for me to use my meal voucher for dinner. There were many other issues as well regarding misplaced baggage, trying to charge me twice for my extra bag, along with several efficiency muckups causing insufferable delays. What a disaster"
