What is your opinion of British Airways??

Hi,

Planning a trip for myself, my sister and a daughter each (both in their 20's ) from Brisbane to London and British Airways at this point in time has the best times and prices to suit our needs.

Just interested in hearing about your experiences flying with BA.... any great or bad things about them you may have come across??

they seem to get pretty decent reviews and if they are the cheapest then that must be a good deal.only used them around europe and they were good but that was more than 5 years ago.hope you enjoy london.

British airways are one of the best airlines but check it's not a code share flight as it might be another airline doing the route.

OP2002 ... Bris to Singapore is codeshare with Qantas ( who I've flown with many times, some good, some bad ) then the Singapore to Heathrow leg is with BA.

bruin.... $1660 rt from Bris to London seems pretty good to me, don't think we'll find much cheaper!! Not actually stopping in London but heading off to the Cotswolds for 5 days then Greece for 3 weeks. Seems crazy going all that way and not going into London but ..... can't do it all, maybe next time.

Thanks both of you for your replies.

Chrella... you must have been posting as I was!!

I actually found the BA flight on itasoftware originally... it's a great site and one I would never have known about without Trip Advisor.

Thanks for your reply.

I've been flying with BA for 30 years, and have flown in all cabins / classes of service. I can count the number of disappointing flights on one hand, a small percentage of overall flights taken.

IMO, BA is a great airline. Yes, I would go with them anytime. There are 2 daily flights between SIN and LHR. Both departing in the late evening from SIN and arrive at day break into LHR.

Me too, except for the 30 years bit (only 20 in my case). Oh, and never in Y. I stopped flying with them for a while as Emirates were so much cheaper for my needs and recently took my first flight with BA in over four years. To my mind, their product had actually improved since the last time I flew it. I love BA!
