The touchscreen was also very simple and did t require a great deal of force to press a button...the steamed towel given before take off was extremely relaxing and set a high standard of expectations during this flight. Almost all of the those expectations were met. The toilets were extremely clean and the service of toothbrushes was the icing on the cake. For my meal I ordered Indian fish curry which could have been a little more spicy (I am Indian so I eat foods with many spices)."

Pros: "I was given an exit row at check in. Nobody tried to wake me up during the flight as sometimes happens on other airlines."

Cons: "Late departing, no gate, waiting, immigration jammed. Overall very bad."
Pros: "They had good movie choices"
Cons: "The stewardesses, for the most part were rude, almost because they were lazy. I had one get pissed because I asked for oolong tea when she was offering coffee or hot tea. Well the cabin was so hot during the whole flight, I didn't want anything hot. She made it seem like she had to go out her way to get it for me. It was on her cart!!! They rarely walked around the cabin to make sure they couldn't get something for you or even take your trash. I held an empty cup during almost an entire movie. When I finally got up to toss it, I gave it to a stewardess who was standing right there by the closes curtain who acted like that it was beneath him to do so. They would rush up and down the isle and pretty much shove your meal on you. Ugh they were just rude. None of want to be there either, especially when it's so hot in the cabin and the seats were so narrow!!"
Pros: "Great legroom in exit row, staff very friendly"
Cons: "Boarding terrible, utter chaos, seat very narrow"
Pros: "Great and friendly people, and was very nice. Great flight."
Cons: "In flight meal was ok. Other than the meal it was nice flight."
Cons: "Due to the late arrival of the previous Thai Smile flight in BKK we had to literally run the length of the airport to catch our next flight. We were taken at pace by an airport staff member who kept telling us that they were closing the gate so we had to hurry. Fair enough but having raced for a very long distance, minus shoes after the security check, we arrived at the gate to find that boarding had not even begun and did not for at least 10 minutes after we arrived at the gate."

Pros: "Efficient cree"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "Al ways friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Easy check-in, friendly, helpful attendants, on-time departure and arrival.."
Cons: "My seat back wouldn't lock in place. Every time I would move or lean, the seat back would shift. My phone and book wouldn't stay in the pocket in front of me. They would fall out of the bottom and onto the floor. I love Thai food, but food on the flight was not good at all; bland and unappetizing. My foot became pinched hard against the food cart during meal service."
Pros: "Flight was ok, apart from being late, flight attendants were nice telling me where to go once I'd got my luggage"
Cons: "My 1-hour flight was delayed about 45 mins, and I had a 'connecting' flight in Bangkok. Made it just in time but I literally had to sprint to the gate to make it. Though that speaks more about the inefficient Bangkok airport"

Pros: "Boarding is smooth. Got a chance to get a seat with more leg room."
Cons: "Crew won't give me drinking-water when I asked. Usually, I get unlimited water and, once on a Delta Flight, the attendent gave me the whole bottle with me. Entertainment panel is not working (no sound). Not a big deal as I intended to sleep the whole way. Food is super bad. Vegetables are overcooked. Rice is smelly. Also a bit hard to understand crew's catering plan. First a separate meals to some specific seats (they aren't vegetarian meal or sort. Just separate type of meals). Then the cart comes to every seat. Again, I asked water but get nothing."

Cons: "Should have more Indian movies on flight."

I am a pure vegetarian & in all my flight the crew made sure that I got the correct food tray & it was not mixed with wrong mean (non veg.) by mistake. Unlike other flight where meal is just an obligation, Cathay made sure that the taste was very nice too. Full points to them. The quality of seats was good & nice leg space as well. Overall the experiance was very pleasant & I highly recommend Cathay Pacific."

Cons: "I understand the airline passenger industry is trying to fit in as many passengers as possible; with preference for the 'money-making' bookings. But the reduction of seat space is very uncomfortable for my 6'2" frame."
Pros: "Good service by the crew"
Pros: "Food was hot, tasty and nutritious."
Cons: "Cramped in cattle class but that's not Cathays fault. I need to earn more to fly comfortably"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours in tarmac"
Cons: "I would have expected in business class not to have to literally climb over other passengers to get out of my seat. The diagram I had looked at before picking a seat made it look like that would not be a problem but when others are laying flat there is no other choice but to climb over hoping not to fall over them or wake them up"
Cons: "Poor service overall."
Pros: "Got from one place to another"
Cons: "Seats are terrible, no entertainment, and high expenses even for soda! Since when is BA in a race to the bottom with all of the other terrible airlines?!"

Cons: "EVERYTHING, but top 3 are: comfort (seats are TINY), legroom (there isn’t any), entertainment (very limited). Lastly, I think I’ll have to gauge out my eyes and ears if I have to endure their safety video one more time..."

Cons: "There was no charging point in the plane in my returning flight so that was a bit disappointing"
Cons: "Seats to small"
Cons: "Bit of delay."
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable."
Cons: "Business class seat configuration remains a problem. Meal service changes means no acknowledgment of frequent fliers with status. Meals assigned in row order so no choices left if you sit at back of business class. If your loyalty is not recognised why be loyal to BA????"
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Cons: "Seats and seat configuration"
Cons: "Traveling business class it felt as if I am traveling in city bus plane was so old seats were falling apart and above all the way ba staff most unfriendly people I was just imagining if this they do in business class what they must be doing in economy class I will not recommend any one to travel from Phoenix to Delhi on B A Jiten"
Pros: "Good variety of onboard entertainment. Middle seats felt roomy."
Cons: "The staff weren't the most professional (save for one or two members) and the food was not great."
Cons: "The plane was actually about to fly off when it suddenly skidded to a stop. We weren't informed about the reason, but all of a sudden, the plane couldn't take off for over two hours. My family and I ended up missing our connecting flight home. BA tried compensating with food vouchers and rebooking us onto another flight, but our family got split up in the process and we were all assigned to different middle seats."
Cons: "5 hours delay, and at 2 of them we were on board. Terrible food. We asked to walk outside, by foot, in the snow to the aircraft. Terrible flight."
Pros: "Flight from Delhi got delayed thus missed connection to Montreal . Put on flight to JKF - Montreal , which didn’t made any sense as we live in USA . Thus requested to be placed on flight JFK- BTV. Then that flight was missed by 5-10 mins , plane was still attached to gait as we reach at gait & it was 2240 pm & flight time was 2250. So spend the night At airport floor with two kids & seven people total in party . No compensation was given at all . BA is the only carrier that charge money to pick up seat assignment in advance more 24 hrs ."
Cons: "Everything mentioned in above section ."
Cons: "my ticket was suspended for no reason, asked me get another ticket book , can't board, later a lady ( Sonam ) there in check in counter resolved. The check in Staff Mr. Gaurav at India airport was rude and over smart while talking to me, he pretended he was busy , but who is FREE in this world. Poor experience at the time of check in. and yes Thanks to Sonam who walked extra mile to talk to customer care of british airways and resolved for my ticket. Finally I could board. Even if ticket was suspended why it was not informed me to take any pro active action, why I had to wait in long queue to know that my ticket was suspende, IS IT NOT RESPONSIBILITY OF BA ???"
Cons: "Poor boarding process No charging outlets on flight (on a 10 hrs flight)"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Seats, entertainment system. Lounge at Heathrow airport served bad food. Bread had fungus in it. I pointed out to the staff there, and there reaction was "no big deal" !! There is such a big difference in"
Cons: "Got sick with the food I had on flight from Del to London and was puking through my next flight from Lon to Van"
Pros: "Chose of Ent. was good."
Cons: "Didn't seem organised and was chaotic at the boarding gate with everyone crowding the aisles-took a long time to board everyone."
Cons: "Sitting near the bathroom. Felt BA should have paid us for the seats"
Cons: "I booked a regular flight and at the end the system or dont know how, booked me PLUS ECONOMY, when I wanted to change my ticket date, it was so expensive and almost no dates were available. Also, you didnt give me chance to downgrade in order to change the dates more easily. I always fly through BA and I love the easy it is to change dates, but this time you disappointed me. I usualy choose BA because its easy and non expensive to change dates in my flight but now I may be open to book with other airlines."
Cons: "Would have been 5 stars except for 12 hours out of 14, of howling baby which is obviously not down to the airline but pretty exhausting to survive (poor parents)!"
Cons: "Went through vayama, for this booking. Arrived for a 1:45 pm flight, which I had paperwork for. Jay Informed me, that a flight change to an am flight was emailed to me in December! No follow up email....say a week before?! Like all the other booking sites I use. Spent another night, in Ediinburgh, plus much money for new tickets. Two airport layovers. Will never go through this site again, rate it poorly and not recommend. Thanks, Vickie Varney"
Pros: "Felt room in spite of being in coach. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Even coffee was not complimentary"
Pros: "The crew tried to keep me comfortable. Even though I was in a regular seat despite paying for a premium seat"
Cons: "When I reached the boarding gate, the attendant took my boarding pass as if he was checking something and changed my seat without asking me, issued me a new boarding pass... no explanation. I had a long flight to London from Delhi already so I was too tired to immediately realize what he had done. It only occurred to me when I boarded the flight. I had booked a premium seat in advance and had paid $175 extra for it. He basically moved me to a regular economy seat at the back without asking me or refunding me. That's fraud."
Pros: "The pilot was were courteous, and kept us update every step of the way..the crew was phenomenal."
Cons: "That the ac wasn't working initially"
Pros: "The entertainment was good with variety. Overall, it's hard to appreciate a 10 hour flight."
Cons: "Seats in coach did not have much width or leg room. I don't like the policy of buying a flight and having to pay for a selected seat - that smacks of bait and switch. I know everybody is doing it, but it's tacking on extras once the committment has been made and that is low. The boarding process in London was horrible. queuing up everybody then telling them the general boarding is "over there". The lines should be more well-defined and single file to avoid bunching up. There was plenty of room to form lines, but the stanchions were not in place. Poorly executed. Also, there are FAR too many priorty boarding classes. People had to jump lines and go around barrier tapes to get to their positions in line when their priority class was called. Once on board, the crew did a fine job, but the boarding area is completely screwed up."
Pros: "Crew and boarding was fine."
Cons: "The plane was 30 minutes late. We had to circle around Heathrow a few times before got permission to land. After landing we could not get to our gate for an extra 15 minutes.."
Pros: "This is a standard european flight. The food is not much of an experience as the flight is short. The service is good"
Cons: "The service is all business and very little attention to comfort. Perfect OK the main mission is to get me to another airport."
Pros: "The entertainment selection and the friendly crew."
Cons: "The seats on the first flight were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room, the aisles were incredibly narrow, and the seats were so close together that my neighbor and I bumped arms throughout the flight, and neither of us are large people. That was our first flight on BA and unfortunately it will probably be our last."
Pros: "787 is new. boarding was mostly efficient, although i was prevented from boarding even though there was nobody in queue due to some rules. food was good. entertainment was pretty complete. crew did well, but their command of english was not as good as one might expect."
Cons: "787 had issues with the window tinting. although it was a day flight, it felt like a night flight, with the expected effects on jet lag and fatigue. also, in premium economy, my seat was in the very last row, next to the toilet with no window, even though it is a window seat. to call a seat the 'window' seat, and then have no window is deceptive."
Pros: "On time, boarding ok, WTP seats good. Reasonable entertainment selections."
Cons: "Lounge: silver card holder so went to South lounge in main building. Usual slop with rice, ghastly. Adequate wine/spirits/beer/coffee etc selection but very irritating you have to ask each time for champagne. Food on board: steak for dinner (from CW menu) over cooked/ruined, as ever. Other airlines can do this fine, unclear why BA chooses not to. Very pleased I didn't pay for CW and got served this. Breakfast is from economy, so plastic utensiles, no table cloth etc. I hate this inconsistent service. Entertainment system clunky and appears dated. Under seat entertainment boxes restrict legroom in most seats (in WTP)."
Pros: "Inflight crew was good and polite."
Cons: "Made me go in economy class que to enter the aircraft inspite of I having paid the 3 times more expensive business class ticket. Business class seats were too small and uncomfortable compared to the other airlines. Loos and facilities were not in accordance compared to the other airlines."
Pros: "Flight was on time, easy boarding procedure .A380 is quiet and comfortable crew was nice"
Cons: "Food is Ok in Economy, I guess to be expected"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Business class seating is bad but centre row in business is terrible in all respects. Tickets should be sold at half price"
Pros: "Friendly service Delay Notification"
Cons: "Extra cost incurred by delay 5/6 lost time in total"
Pros: "Got to Hong Kong alive..."
Cons: "Got downgraded from full-fare business to premium economy; then they lost my luggage (my travel companion also got food poisoning)"
Pros: "Individually the crew was quite nice and tried to do their best to their best."
Cons: "Dirty toilets. No toilet seat covers. Ran out of toilet paper. No oversight to basic hygiene given a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "Old aircraft on sector"
Pros: "Got to the destination safely."
Cons: "Last minute gate changes made a rush to board."
Pros: "Flight crew and the actul flight was great."
Cons: "The food was terribl"
Cons: "Charges were all over the map. I bought the ticket on the 27th, but BA kept reimbursing and recharging me until the 15th. The booking agent processed the last "agent" fee almost one month later on the 20th. In London, BA had no record of my reservation, then told me I didn't have a seat after finally acknowledging my ticket. I was made number 12 on standby for this LON-NYC flight, which I did not appreciate."
Pros: "Nothing stood out as spectacular - it was a basic flight from A to B, but everything went smoothly and we arrived on time."
Cons: "The breakfast croissant was very uninspiring."
Pros: "The food service was frequent and surprisingly delicious for airplane fare! The plane was well-equipped and comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive, and friendly."
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Seats were so close together I could hardly move. Too close for international flight! The tall guy behind me needed me to keep my chair up some from reclined position because it hit him!"
