I have taken this flight several times in the last year and the service has all ways been excellent. It may appear more expensive than other budget airlines but when you add up the additional costs of luggage food etc there is very little difference. Would highly reccomend it.

Our family recently flew to London for vacation. The flight was not only enjoyable but relaxing. In a time when airlines are charging for extras and taking away room comfort, British airways is bringing it back. The seats were comfortable, the flight crew were professional and courteous. The meals and snacks we're not only free on trans-Atlantic flights, but also...

Flew DUS to LHR to transfer onto long haul flight with AA. Check in staff at DUS not too friendly and rather slow (not BA staff but ground handling agent). Swift boarding and efficient crew. Nothing wrong there.

We booked direct flights from AUS to LHR and can't brag enough about the wonderful crew on this flight, HOWEVER, our brand new 787 had tiny seats in Economy and we were just miserable for the non-stop 9 hour flight. We flew 4 other BA flights and all were wonderful!

I was scared to fly in this monstrasity of a plane, but once on I was in awe of how nice it was and how accommodating the flight attendants were. And the food on board was super good for airplane meals. I was comfortable all the way, watched 2 1/2 movies (I finally fell asleep), listened to music, and watched...

This Club World cabin crew were exactly like a live advert for BA. They addressed passengers by name and they were continually asking if they could be of any assistance. Even the food served on this flight was remarkably edible

We flew British Airways from Rome, Italy to San Francisco, California. I paid extra so we could fly business class since it was a 13 hour flight, and I am glad we did. The seats folded all the way down and made into beds. Food and service was excellent.

I fly exclusively with BA, to accumulate points, but also because I feel safe and cared for while flying. They're very experienced and make sure everyone is comfortable, and keep the passengers informed as to upcoming turbulence as well as delays and weather reports. Flying with them again in a week, looking forward.
