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.

BA cancelled the flight for no reason at all, causing a huge disruption in my business, significant disruptions in my client relationships and unforseeable financial damage.

How can you justify £248 for a 1 hour flight? Simply ridiculous. But I had to pay because I had to travel home for personal reasons

Outbound departure delayed by 2 hours and missed my connection in Sao Paolo as a result. BA were very good at getting me an alternative flight with another airline and I arrived just 90 minutes late in Mendoza.
