The flight, plane and flight crew were great! The flight itself was not a problem at all. The HUGE issue was the mess at Heathrow airport. It was mass chaos, no direction or aisles for the connecting flights customers. Hundreds of people were trying to get through the boarding pass scanning to get to security. We were traveling with two children and after at least a 1/2 hour waiting on one side of the immigration hall, were told we had to move across the entire mass of people to another area. We stood there for another 1/2 hour without moving, then were told we had to move back to the first area because we had children! An employee looked at our boarding pass and told us we had missed the flight to go to the rebooking area. So we went there - stood for 1/2 hour again and then were told to go to a different area since we had children. We went to the next area - stood there for 45min, the employee looked at our boarding pass and told us the flight was delayed to go to the gate. SO we returned to the SAME ORIGINAL area, tried to explain to an employee we were told to go to that area. The employee became very upset and was rude, complaining that someone had moved the barrier? (We had not touched it - we were simply trying to follow directions) We finally made it to security after an hour wait, one of our bags had to be inspected. At this point we were resigned to missing the flight - we still had to get to Cgates in terminal 5. We did manage to make the flight. BUT someone needs to figure out the mass confusion in the immigration hall. If there are only a certain number of scanners available. perhaps indicating the lanes as soon as you enter the hall would be a solution?? Instead of having lines 50 people wide trying to funnel them down into 5-6 scanners? I understand staff shortages, short tempers, etc. I am not an airport export, but I imagine there are people that can determine a solution to this MAJOR problem at such a huge and busy airport. Surely determining a solution to better movement of customers would save rebooking costs, etc for the airlines.
+ Equipaggio sempre allegri e felici + Interno aereo nuovo e pulito + Buona attenzione alla disciplina anti-COVID - Partenza in ritardo inizialmente per problema staff, poi valigia da scaricare per passeggero mancante, finalmente per problema attrezzatura aeroporto. Una storia… - Postazione 26F molto ristretto con poco spazio per i ginocchi, bracce, sotto la sedia davanti. sono nella media per altezza (182cm) ma mi sentivo scomodo.
The company did not know how to handle COVID bureaucracy efficiently or even correctly. We were asked to fill in four forms when only one is needed or even checked at all. I had to come in early to the airport, take a COVID test and then wait in the airport departure lobby for almost 1h to check in while waiting for the test results. Given that I spent a substantial amount to get a business ticket, I expected my time to be respected and to have business facilities made available. Once reached, the lounge now has an ordering system instead of self-service. The food was honestly disgusting, cold boiled rice without any salt and some "Spanish chorizo chicken" that had no chorizo and tasted like boiled chicken dropped in reheated tomato sauce. The plane departed one hour late. The business class seat was small, but comfortable. The company sent a boiler plate email apologizing which is something you appreciate the first time and it becomes grating when you get more than one per week.
I wasn’t allowed to get my boarding passes for connecting flights and almost missed my last flight.
Punti positivi: "Nothing it was delayed by over an hour and there was ZERO on ground or in air rebooking support or information at all! Ground crew were useless and rude. No one was there to navigate us through a delay that you all caused. We were traveling with 5 children and there was zero sense of urgency. We missed our connecting flight as a result as did the 100+ other passengers on this flight. How could BA not notify it’s partner AA to delay the connecting transatlantic flight as a result of its 1hr long delays? Horrid!"

Punti positivi: "Nulla, solo discomfort"
Punti negativi: "Accoglienza e puntualità"
Punti positivi: "The people from British airways were incredibly helpful."
Punti negativi: "British airways pushed the flight time which made the original connection flight from Heathrow impossible. They notified justfly the company who we used to book the flight and told them the reservation would be cancelled. Only justfly never did something about that. They did not notify us about any changes and when we arrived at the airport the lady at the counter told us we don't have a reservation even though justfly happily took our money. If it weren't for the BA staff who rebooked is through Air France we probably wouldn't have made it."
Punti negativi: "Il ritardo di 1 ora per la partenza"
Punti negativi: "Il ritardo di più di un’ora della partenza è inaccettabile per una compagnia aerea come la BA"
Punti positivi: "The BA staff on the plane were excellent, given the horrible way we arrived to board the plane. They went above and beyond to help mitigate the treatment before boarding the plane. Also, our vegan that we requested via American Airlines on the phone back in September didn't appear on their list, so they made the best out of a bad situation."
Punti negativi: "Our first BA flight was late leaving and therefore we arrived to our 2nd flight 20 minutes before the flight was to leave. The check-in staff were completely rude, telling us to run and threatening to not let us on the plane. It was not our fault the plane left late from BCN to LHR. Once we were actually let on the plane, we didn't push back from the gate until 5-10 minutes after the scheduled departure time. There was absolutely no reason to have treated us that way, so we promptly submitted a complaint to British Airways."
Punti negativi: "The worst flight I took in years. A dated airplane, with seats uncomfortable and worn off, an inflight entertainment system that looked straight from the 90s. We had. 1:20h delay ( announced on board ) on departure as the engine had to be repaired and replacement parts installed."
Punti positivi: "Cleanliness of the plane, comfort on board"
Punti negativi: "Totally unpolite personnel at Heathrow airport. We were at the beginning of the line, but they forced us to check-in the cabin bag, asserting that the flight was packed and there was no space available. The girl that was checking our ticket didn't answer our questions regarding the reason, and told us to speak with her boss. Her boss told us pointlessly that our bag was chosen randomly. In the end, we had to put in a little plastic bag everything valuable we had in the baggage, though on the plane there was plenty of space available in the overhead lockers."
Punti positivi: "Comfort, friendly staff"
Punti negativi: "Paying for food and drinks"
Punti negativi: "Neppure un bicchiere d’acqua. Volo da 40 anni non mi era mai capitato."

Punti positivi: "Poco"
Punti negativi: "Il volo con 45' di ritardo (una consuetudine guardando i giorni precedenti). All'arrivo ancora attesa all'interno del aeromobile, perché il terminal non era pronto. Nel 2018 è inaccettabile, i mezzi di comunicazione esistono e funzionano. Assurdo!"

Punti positivi: "Nice aircraft! Very modern."
Punti positivi: "Not much. Eventually got to where we were going."
Punti negativi: "I can't remember a more cramped and uncomfortable flight. Missed connection on way Paris and we arrived 6 hours late. It took British airways 3 days to get our lost luggage to us. Delayed on way back, adding 4 hours to our trip because the first plane was not "serviceable" and they had to get a replacement. They arbitrarily decide who has to much carry on luggage and force you to check it last minute at the gate while letting others with same size bags take them on the plane. Certainly no better than bargain flights and possibly worse. Why pay extra? No more British Airways for us."
Punti positivi: "la puntualità"
Punti negativi: "la difficoltà all'imabrco per l'eccesso di bagagli a mano. avrei oreferito un imbarco forzato in stiva per un certo numero di passeggeri (io ero gruppo 4 e probabile canditato ...) perchè troppe persone portano come secondo bagaglio item troppo grandi e invece di inserirli sotto i sedili li devono mettono nei comparti overhead. non ci sta più nulla! il personale èstato comunque premuroso e gentile (con con grande professionalità) riducendo il fastidio. era venerdì sera."

Punti negativi: "The plane was actually about to fly off when it suddenly skidded to a stop. We weren't informed about the reason, but all of a sudden, the plane couldn't take off for over two hours. My family and I ended up missing our connecting flight home. BA tried compensating with food vouchers and rebooking us onto another flight, but our family got split up in the process and we were all assigned to different middle seats."

Punti negativi: "We had a carry on and were flying business class. They made us check in the bag but it was clear that it could fit. They said it was a busy flight so we had to give our bag up to check in. We arrived on the plane and there was plenty of space to put our luggage. It was not a friendly experience especially paying the premium to fly business. They were very direct and non forgiving. Crew on board were nice though!"

Punti negativi: "Heathrow need to build more capacity to reduce emissions and delays."
Punti positivi: "Staff were great, classy even, making the journey pleasant"
Punti negativi: "On checking in I wasn’t given the option to add a bag, meaning I had to pay over double the rate at the airport. Trying to add one online or on the app failed. Calling the support helpline was a waste of time and money; spending 10mins on hold before being told there was nothing to be done."
Punti positivi: "The flight went really easy and smooth. The cabin crew was very efficient doesn't disturb you during the fligh with sales therefore you can focus on your things."
Punti positivi: "On time"
Punti negativi: "Group of men walked about and talked to each other rather than sitting in their seats."
Punti positivi: "How efficient, professional and pleasant the captain As well as cabin crew were."
Brand new machine arriving in time to destination, everything went smoothly
The flight was loud, seats uncomfortable, but the flight attendant’s we’re nice 👌. Very poor in terms of comfort or food. Also really expensive. I would advise everyone to eat and drink before the flights. It’s really bad.
Flight delayed without explanation
No food or entertainment. Reasonable seats
You asked about food and entertainment, but there was none. The seats were uncomfortable.
Impossibilitato a contattare il call center 😡
announcements in english. 5 hour delay, asked twice (and so did other passengers), but no updates in any other language.
Punti negativi: "This really is more about the flight from paris to Bucharest: I’ve literally never experienced a worse ticketing and boarding process. Old planes, ride staff (even by remarkably curt and abrupt Romanian standards). Broken inline experience. Overall unpleasant. Seems to be flown only by Romanian families with hundreds of pounds of luggage. Like a caravan."
Punti positivi: "Puntuale"
Punti negativi: "Nulla"

Punti negativi: "One hour delay"
Punti positivi: "Food was excellent; boarding a litlle bit crowded, but didn't notice as had been busy; crew has been kind and helpful"

Punti negativi: "Check in indisponibile. Dal terrore ho comprato un secondo biglietto con Alitalia che purtroppo subappalto le tratte a questa compagnia low cost con prezzi però da prima classe Alitalia. Verogognoso"
Punti positivi: "The flight departed on time and arrived the same. The seat was a tad bit narrow for me but then I am a tall guy at 6'5". Crew was very professional. Ticket cost was a third of what the other airlines were offering for a Sunday fare. I'll definitely use BlueAir again!"
Punti negativi: "I was not allowed to take the push chair on board even though on the inbound flight was ok to do so. I have purchased the push chair especially so I can take it on board. Disappointed."
Punti positivi: "Boarding was quick and we arrived on time."
Punti negativi: "When getting to Bucharest we were taken by bus and didn’t have a gate."
Punti positivi: "Everything was quite fast, we were like 15 min before the plan ready with boarding, but then somebody needed medical assistabce and we left 15 min delayed. But that's ok, it's nobody's fault. Baggage arrived very fast in Hamburg."
Punti negativi: "A minus for the Crew because when we arrived in Hamburg, people started to open the baggage boxes although we were still rolling (like 5 min too early) and they didn't say anything, so more people were following. When we arrived, almost all the people who could, had the baggage already with them. This happened in the past but the Crew stopped the people on time."
Punti positivi: "What to like? The rudness? The delays? Or the fights on board!!!"
Punti negativi: "The flight was delayed with nearly 2 hrs. Cabin crew were rude made as feel very uncomfortable. This flight as whoke was the worst one I have even been too. Never ever again. BLUE AIR NEEDS TO SORT ALOT OF THINGS BEFORE OFFER SUCH SERVICES"
Punti positivi: "Stupid survey can’t eliminate category that doesn’t ajgpply"
Punti negativi: "I was unable to check n online (although the process was intitated well earlier than 12 hours prior to departure). The system charged y credit card for a seat reservation and then crashed with an error, both on my phone and laptop browser. When I called at 9:00 am (when their offices are open) to ask for help with what happened, I received no answer other than, "the check in system has just closed. I am unable to help you in any way". I booked another flight with another carrier, and did not take this flight., not do I plan to book with them in the future That being said, it is not the job of the employee to defend a poorly working system. Services need upgrade asap."
Punti negativi: "I have booked with 2 checked in baggage pieces. On check in I was told no baggage was paid and I had to pay 100€ for the baggage."
Punti positivi: "Boarding was good, flight and crew were good, had refreshments and food which came as a surprise. Overall I had a very good flight."
Punti negativi: "I liked everything"
Punti positivi: "Clean enough"
Punti negativi: "Charged £60 for hold luggage because the airline’s unstable website wouldn’t allow me to book in advance (£20 extra in the airport). Plane was delayed because they were late allowing passengers to board and missed the runway slot. Seats were uncomfortable - it was an older airframe."
Punti positivi: "The added touches make all the difference! We didn’t expect free food and was delighted to receive breakfast. The chairs were much more comfortable than any other plane I’ve been on due to the adjustable head rest, and as a regular flyer to Cyprus, this made a difference. The sweets served just before landing is an excellent idea and something that we do need due to our ears, so this was appreciated. staff were attentive and pleasant."
Punti negativi: "To have the menu and duty free booklet at the beginning of the flight would have been helpful."
Punti positivi: "Flight Attendants very good"
Punti negativi: "Dusseldorf to Warsaw: Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight out of Dusseldorf (about an hour) - Just before landing, pilot announced all connections would be made - (and even mentioned chicago) - Connecting flight was gone when I arrived at gate, and I was quick in getting to gate from prior flight - next flight caused 5 hour layover in Warsaw Warsaw to Chicago Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight our ot Warsaw (about an hour) - no messaging at gate about reason for delay - kept increasing departure by 5 minute increments; started at 16:40 ended 17:05 (I beleive) - once boarding was complete, pilot said delay was due to wait for connections (boarding was an hour and 15 minutes late). Very frustrated"

Punti negativi: "The internet support. I spent meny hours trying to check-in and upgrade my case allowance from 20kg to 32kg, and failed. When I tried to change the baggage weight to 32kg a charge was added for NOT taking the case PLUS the extra for the 32kg case! The cost of a case is reasonable and I would advise to pay the extra £5 for 32kg for most flights. The on-line Seating Selection is also unreliable, I was seated next to an empty seat which had been showing to be unavailable on-line! A response to my query which I sent to Blue Air arrived when I was in the air on the flight! It only repeated the baggage section of the Confitions document! Thank goodness for the excellent airport check-in staff and the Flight Crew!"

Punti negativi: "Lack of leg room ."
Punti negativi: "The actual flight was good, but to try and check in on line is murder..the website needs a totally new revamp, both to & from Larnaca I was unable to check in on line.

Volo partito in ritardo, bagagli persi nel trasferimento
Very comfortable for this kind of airplane : Canadian bombardier
Partiti da Roma il giorno dopo a causa di un annullamento volo ryanair da Bari per nebbia e non rimborsato ! Albergo e volo tutto a spese mie. Con Airways invece tutto perfetto
Boarding in the heat was not pleasant
Spazio ridotto per le gambe. Peggio di una low cost Aereo vecchio
More than 2 hours late and no food because of a problem with the catering. The flight was super full and there wasn’t enough space for the hand bags. A lot of space for improvement.
Main trouble was with Kiwi -- a partner booking organization through Kayak. Even though tI booked well in advance they did not assign me a seat and I came within a minute iof getting bumped from the flight. On the return trip the airline sent me an ominous message that I had to provide additional info before I could receive my boarding pass and that if there were problems I would get a refund. That caused unnecessary stress since the airline just needed my home address. Kiwi should have made sure they had collected all the necessary information from me before they booked my flight.
Long delay, lack of space at the seats (not comfortable).
We made the boarding and then waited inside 40minutes before taking off The plane was too full It was probably the worst flight of my life in terms of comfort. I was in the central seat, and on my right i had a very big person who was occupying part of my seat since he did not fit in just one. I think in these cases the staff should notice and do something about it. I checked if there were available seats by myself, but it was all full. Maybe in business class there were still available seats though.
volo rapido in 50 m circa, cortesia sempre degli assistenti, rinfresco gratuito
Expect Full aircraft in economy
Nel complesso un buon viaggio .. un po’ di allerta per gli scioperi del 16/12/2021 ma fortunatamente questa compagnia è partita con solo 20 minuti di ritardo
Uno snack oltre al bicchiere d'acqua, sarebbe molto gradito in un volo di oltre un'ora, per il resto, old is gold, aerei soliti e personale molto educato.
