british airways

On the 12th of March my wife and I are going to visit my home in the United States. For the first time in my life I decided to go all out and really enjoy my trip, so I booked our flight business class. I booked our flight though CheapOair with British Airways which seemed […]

July 1st marked the worst travel experience my husband, daughter and I have ever had anywhere in the world. Beyond the massive delay and missed connection, the customer service from British Airways was horrific. It was not until we boarded our flight 6 hours later that we were able to speak to actual BA personnel. […]

I’m writing this in the hopes that people don’t get burned by British Airways like we got burned by them. I believe my experience with BA customer service reveals an airline which does not hold itself accountable when it screws up. If you have an option, do not fly British. Because of bad information given […]

BA Flight 217 Heathrow – DC August 4, 2015. I travel quite a bit both within Europe and transatlantic. The nightmare of an experience that I had on August 4th on British Airways (BA) is one that I will never forget!

In August 2006 I was flying to Amsterdam from SFO to take a cruise to the Baltics three days later. This was on the day of the “fluid bombers” scare on British Air. American Airlines to JFK to Heathrow, then British Air to Amsterdam. I used miles, hence the many stops. Luckily I was in […]

I’ve definitely read worse horror flying stories than mine… and mine had some up moments… but, I’ll share anyway.

As a veteran traveler for both business and pleasure, I am self-employed (and very thrifty). Premium Economy is about the most I would shell out for a flight. However, as my cousin works for British Airways, on the way back from JKF to LHR I was treated to the lofty heights of Business Class!

Travelling alone most of the time, I make sure to always get a window seat even for long haul flights. I do not need to go the bathroom often and I always make sure to go whenever the people next to me go. Also, I find the window a good place to lean on when […]

This occurrence happened in 2005 when I was 15 and going on a round-the-world trip with my dad. We had landed at Heathrow after a 14 hour flight from Tokyo and had to change planes to fly to Paris. So we get onto a small BA Airbus without much trouble. Then as we are about […]

Flight Full Of Flatulence

September 22, 2010

in Odor Stories

I was flying from Germany to Kenia with British Airways. The first annoyance was the arrangement of the seats: I had to sit straight up all the time because the seat rows were so tight that my knees bumped against the seat in front of mine, and I am a quite small woman. I don’t […]
