Setisty all the service of Britishairways
Good flight. Timing was good as my daughter could come and collect me fromvthe airport at night.
EXCELLENT JOURNEY DOWN TO HEATHROW. NOT TOO BUSY, WE HAD TO CIRCLE FOR 10 MINUTES PRIOR TO LANDING.
Flight was cancelled. Never booking with Vueling again. A week later and they havent responded my complaint.
Wish I had been told clearly that it would be air lingus not bad as purchased.
Good staff... professional
Great flight experience. I would always like to travel with British airways
Their prices are higher than other airlines for the same route.
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.
very good service
Leg room little issue, other wise all good
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.
Make it clear in Barcelona that the airline for the journey is in the correct location
Poor seating. Poor food. Difficult /expensive seat choice
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
