Flying with British Airways

British Airways (BA) was founded in 1973 and is the UK's largest international airline, and the second largest in Europe, with a fleet of over 240 aircraft and carrying almost 32 million passengers in 2010. The airline's two main hubs are located in London's two major airports, Heathrow and Gatwick, and it offers routes to more than 160 destinations, including six domestic.

In January 2011, British Airways and Iberia officially merged creating the International Airlines Group (IAG), the world’s third largest airline in terms of annual revenue. The British Airways Group includes British Airways Plc and a number of additional companies. The airline has partnerships and agreements with numerous companies, and being a founding member of Oneworld alliance, British Airways is able to operate a network that covers more than 600 destinations.

The company also has agreements with independent airlines based in the United Kingdom, which fly under British Airways name, flight code and company conditions. It also offers code share routes with other airlines. BA Cityflyer, British Midland International (BMI), OpenSkies, and British Airways World Cargo are subsidiary airlines owned by British Airways.

Date 2018-04-14 Location U.K. Age 51-70 Class Economy

British Airways in Gatwick kept us waiting on the taxi-way for 2 hours before departure , with only a cup of water to keep us refreshed- unacceptable. In contrast our two- legged flight with Alitalia was relieved by complimentary cold and hot drinks on each leg. However, the flight connection in Milan, already shortened twice before our flight started, was further compromised by a 20 minute delay in departire from Catania! Leading to an almost missed flight from Milan to London and our checked in luggage not reaching us until two days later. Other passangers reported this as not uncommon with Alitalia. I would not choosecto fly Alitalia again.

My plane was delayed at Aberdeen airport that is why my flight from Heathrow to Doha was cancelled. I had to stay at London overnight and travelled the following day . Due to delay at Duce airport my another flight from Kathmandu was cancelled.

A very misleading ticket. It said 1 connection! It wasn't a cheap ticket at ?659. I had to pay an addition fee of ?57 to be able to transfer from Heathrow to Gatwick to get the Cape Town connection. I had collect my luggage as it could be completely checked through because of 2 airport changes in London!! On return the transfer from Gatwick back then to terminal 2 at Heathrow was so long I missed my connecting flight. NOT HAPPY . I EXPECT YOUR RESPONSE
