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.

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

Slightly unusual that BA don't accept cash for in flight purchases, also total lack of inflight entertainment.... But not really a deal breaker, otherwise everything OK.

Date 2017-11-12 Location Cornwall UK Age Under 30 Class Economy

Flight was over an hour late leaving Newquay which meant that when we got to Heathrow we had missed our coach to get to Gatwick. We arrived at Gatwick 2 minutes before our second flight was due to leave. Thankfully British Airways were very helpful and managed to book us on a later flight and provided ?20 in vouchers for food. On the way home our flight to Newquay was cancelled completely and we were put on a coach which meant we arrived home 6 hours later than planned. Not a pleasant experience at all.

Glad to see BA stick to their standards of service. Unique in their own quality of service even though it is an older company, compairing their service to other low cost flight companies I would say BA has far better one than them. Also the plane is spacious, a whole lot quieter, friendly staff and you don't have to pay separately for simple foods on thr plane as it comes with the service. Just how it is supposed to be.
