Certainly more than impressed with all aspects of this flight. Check in was fast and efficient, boarding was seamless, and on board service was fantastic. Seats were very comfortable, interior was clean and well maintained, entertainment was excellent and snacks/meals were very good. The crew genuinely seemed happy and were all smiles, very engaging, and worked well as a team....

The aircraft was quite new and the leather seats were very comfortable. It ran to time; very pleasant. The crew were very courteous and we we enjoyed a selection of drinks onboard. One of the crew even found me some nuts from the "Club Europe" section!

I have flown on BA for more than 35 years.It used to be one of the best in the world. Now I fly every 3 weeks and while it still has some of the best routing that's all it has. The airlines lounges are poor at best. The showers are beyond bad and the on flight service is poor generally...

A short flight made smoother with no one sitting next to me, a snack was served even in Economy and the service was ok even if it wasn't friendly/excellent. On time departure and landing, so overall the flight was good.

We flew from Athens. Greece to London, England...then from London to Boston, Massachusetts USA. The first flight was smooth and just about perfect...from the flight, passengers were able to see land all the way...the Alps were breathtaking. Our flight from London to Boston was on a 747...carrying nearly 667 passengers...quite a majestic aircraft. The flight was flawless...the crew and stewards...

I love how BA treats each passenger like they matter. Loved the little bag with socks, sleeping mask and toothbrush. Lots of meals during both outbound and inbound flight, always with great quality and I liked how they managed to pack lots of flavour in them. Flight attendants were always available and extremely helpful.
