The best option is to travel by taxi or to arrange for a car and a driver with your hotel.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Captain gave us good updates on delay."
Pros: "The crew was ok. They seemed really hectic between Heathrow to Rome."
Cons: "The seats were too tiny for business class. Nowhere to put anything. So close to next passenger. I would not fly business class again on BA Terrible entertainment. No interesting movies. I guess they tried to have movies only with British actors/actresses. Nothing current. That’s pretty bad for almost. 10 hours flt. He seats in business class between Heathrow to Rome were like regular seats except with the middle seat blocked off. Food was just ok."
Cons: "Wifi and entertainment need help"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The seats"
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!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours; not sure how to fix that but it was annoying. For some reason the arm rests in the middle of the seats would not go fully back and I felt like the flight attendants were talking down to me. They also could have been having a bad day too with the flight. :/"
Pros: "Crew very pleasant, professional and friendly."
Cons: "Tired and dated cabin; seats extremely uncomfortable causing severe back pain. In flight entertainment very old fashioned with small low resolution screens."
Cons: "The plane was at the gate for almost 2 hours due to the fuel tanks - apparently the engineers didn't know which tanks were refueled. Sounded a bit weird. I bill at $800 per hour - I think I should be compensated for my time."
Pros: "It's a non-stop from Austin to Heathrow. Flight attendants were helpful and professional. Flight was on time."
Cons: "This 747 should be refurbished or retired. I've traveled this flight on 777s and newer 747s. This plane was an embarassment."
Pros: "Terrible food. The food will actually make you sick."
Cons: "Charge extra for food but provide food that will not make you sick."
Cons: "I noticed that a rubber beading of a sliding part of the left wing was worn out and was waving with the wind. I feel this should be fixed immediately for our safety."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Was so late that I was rebooked from JFK to LGA. By the time I got to LGA they wouldn’t allow me on that flight because I was too late to check a bag. Then another 4 hr delay to the next flight."
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."
Pros: "Amazing service in club Europe"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "the first flight from Chicago to London was great. very good aircraft."
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online. Website said to go to airport and talk to staff - should have said: "invalid passport, get new one!" That would have been so much more helpful. Substandard food, especially 'breakfast'"
Cons: "Flight was okay. Did not get my bag after landing at Mumbai airport. Have to wait 24 hours to get it. Very inconvenient."
Pros: "Basically ontime although a bit delayed getting started. Crew was attentive . Food Ok. Seating could be a bit better."

Pros: "Choice of inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew couldn’t serve hot drinks, focussed on clearing trays!"
Pros: "the pre-boarding for families with kids was nice, the staff were helpful during the flight"
Cons: "The flight home to DC was fine. The flight going to London from DCA was horrible.The deserts on the kids meals had mold on them. My daughter was vomiting as a result of the food. It ate into our trip which was hard for us as we were visiting my grandmother who is not well. We contacted the airline about it and their proposed compensation was not what we were expecting. Honestly we plan to make an annual trip but based on our experiences with this trip maybe we'll choose a different airline."
Pros: "The flight staffs were awesome"
Cons: "No USB port on the plane"
Cons: "Thank you"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly, responsive, and helpful. They made sure we had timely service for all aspects of the trip."
Cons: "We were involuntarily downgraded from Business to economy for our 9 hour flight from London to Mumbai. Outside our party of 3 there was also another party of 3 in the same boat as us. It seems like British Airways is too aggressive with overbooking the higher end sections of the flight, which seem much less likely to have people 'no-show' (either because it's for work or because they've spent so much for the tickets)."
Pros: "Great, very comfortable, easy transatlantic flight"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "A few of us were held up on the tram. The doors were shut And they held the plane and accommodated us. For that I give 10 stars. I will always try to book British Air first"

Cons: "the entertainment screen was fuzzy - visual images unclear on video audio selections were good though length of concourse was ridiculous and lining up for boarding was chaotic"
Cons: "My wife didn't able to travel. She is on h4 visa and when we tried to checkin at airport staff said she can't travel because she doesn't have valod visa in her passport for us. I tried to explain to staff that her h4 visa is her us visa but didn't accept. I have no problem with uk policy but atleast britiah airways should let is know when we booked ticket that you need visa on your passport. I will never ever travel through british airways."
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!"

Pros: "Plane was comfortable. Seats were not bad. Spent most of the flight asleep."
Cons: "Part was a code share with AA. When BA transfered the data to AA, they lost the seat assignments which I found out about at the last minute and ended up spending almost $400 to get acceptable seats. Could not get boarding passes at our origin in Rome and had to wait in line at LHR. Boarding seemed very disorganized."
Pros: "The 787s are super spacious!! Economy class never felt so good."
Pros: "The crew was great & the food was great too. Service was excellent, very friendly. Managed to get a window seat. It was perfect, a little cozy nook of my own. The 787 had only 7 seats in a row, the configuration was better, more comfortable."

Cons: "I require wheelchair assistance .. There was only one person servicing the entire group of people on the prior flight as a result it took us way longer to get to our connecting flight and we all ended up missing it. I had to spend over 12 hours in London .. Which was very uncomfortable and tiring for me considering my poor health, the previous 8 HR flight from Boston-London and the upcoming 9 hour london-Mumbai."

Pros: "Having just got off the dreamliner, I may be somewhat biased... apologies"
Cons: "This plane was as old as me....I know it was an internal flight and these planes just go back and forth without any TLC inbetween. It's a business after all. Short 3.5 hour flight. The plane was so worn out, seat padding, there was was none, as it had seen better days, the covers were no longer covering the seats as the padding had disintegrated somewhere and were just hanging onto the seats for dear life!!!, it felt dirty and unkept, it smelled like an old toilet also. The fittings, trays where you could store your stuff was dirty also I didn't even eat the food, I was paranoid. Felt totally uncomfortable on this flight , sorry Air India but you need to have some standards on short flights despite what price you put on the seats. This was part of my long haul flight from Sydney to Mumbai which has marred my experience with you."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work in our seats. Staff were quite rude when asking for a third beer and refused to allow any more. In eight hours, that’s the first time I have experienced this on any airline. I am a frequent flyer with Qatar and ba and have flown long haul on most airlines. My two colleagues also had the same treatment and they turned there nose up at my Indian wife. Very dissapointed and I will be writing a complaint in person to the airline."

Pros: "Staff behaviour is good."
Cons: "The takeoff is always delayed. Food quality is substandard."
Pros: "Pricing seating and foid"
Cons: "3.20pm flight took off at 10.20pm. Sure, the issues were due to bad weather that affected all airlines at Goa airport, but the other airlines recovered as soon as the airport was reopened around 6.30pm. Air India didn’t have a plane show up till 9pm. They even allowed the 6.40pm flight take off before the 3.20pm flight. No announcements letting passengers know what the deal was except telling us that there was a delay. I had to use apps to get the information I needed."

Pros: "The proactive decision to upgrade me to Business Class on my birthday. Early take off and early arrival."
Cons: "Entrainment on way back was problematic. No information on final departure time after delay going out"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disprganized"
Cons: "The flight was at first delayed by 3 hours because of a technical issue. At first they delayed us by an hour an a half, and added another hour and a half delay to it after the 1st slot. The delays were announced at the last moment. Then Air India sends us for dinner, and while most people are at the restaurant, they announce at the gate that the flight has been cancelled. The few of us who were waiting at the gate were told to head to the transfer desk where alternate arrangements would be made. The Air India staff gave us no information on what these alternatives were or what options we had. The transfer desk is operated by SQ. We passengers had to break the news of the cancellation to the staff at the desk . They had not received any intimation or direction from Air India yet and were unable to help us. SQ called Air India out of their own initiative to get the ball moving on how to assist us. Still we had to queue up and wait for 20 minutes before Air India called SQ and gave some authorisation. There would be only 60 seats offered on the SQ flight the next morning on a 1st come 1st serve basis! What about the rest ? What if I wanted a refund ? No answers. Take it or leave it ! There was no AI staff to assist or even speak to. Much later the people who were delayed at dinner and never made it onto the SQ flight were given the option of flying 25 hrs later by another AI flight. While technical problems happen , what disappointed me was the lack of communication. No reasons, no proper alerts. Nothing at all from AI."
