BA tend to lose baggage. I was asked to check in my hand luggage and I did and now it’s been lost for days. My dociments were in it, a very expensive LV hand luggage bag and in it some important items. A shame for that company. So unprofessional and irrespinsible.

Cork International - Heathrow ( ORK - LHR )
2.0 /5
Date 2019-02-18 Age 31-50 Class Economy

I have paid extra to include a checked in suitcase. My luggage got lost because airlines do not have agreement and ask passengers to take their own bags and check them in again WHILE they are IN TRANSIT. When the connections do not allow, this is not possible. 3 days later my suitcase has not been returned.

close to on-time. its been a few years since i have use British Airways. I was amazed that their seats are just as cramped as Ryanair - and you have to pay for a coffee/tea. Compared to Lufthansa or Air-Lingus BA has moved seriously down.

Belfast City Apt - Merignac ( BHD - BOD )
3.0 /5
Date 2019-02-02 Class Economy

I was disappointed in the reception I received when trying to check in with BA on the morning of 30th January at City Belfast Airport - when I was informed they were co-sharing with Aer Lingus and I was sent to the AL desk - I had repeatedly tried all day on 29th to check in reserve my seat and be reassured that my baggage and my transit arrangements were automatically taken care of This was not the case - and am appalled Aer Lingus tried to charge me gbp100 (YES ONE HUNDRED POUNDS) to take my trolley bag on board - I had an argument with them and said this was a disgraceful display of trying to extract extra money from travellers, especially as I really should be on BA

Heathrow - Saint Exupery ( LHR - LYS )
3.0 /5
Date 2019-01-30 City France Age 31-50 Class Economy

The only remark I have, is about the reservation, Apparently there was an issue with the payment and only the departure flight was accepted. That was not instantly obvious. For that reason I had to book another flight back, which of course made my travel more expensive. It would be better that a more obvious confirmation or rejection message is generated. It was also not possible to check in online, although it was suggested to do that. This caused some confusion about my tickets being ok or not and I could not use the check in machine at none of the airports for my flights.

I paid for a ticket with you only to find out that my booking was cancelled as I tried to check in at the airport without being informed . I had to purchase an expensive ticket at the airport for the same journey I was suppose to have paid for. It wasn’t a nice experience !!!.

Never buy perfume if your getting a connecting flight. Even though it's put in a sealed airport bag. Some cretin of a customs man will want to open them and destroy the packaging. No good if you want to give them as presents
