No more frantic inbox searches before leaving for the airport. No more desperate bag-rustling at the departure gate. This app puts every piece of our essential information (outside reminding us to pack a toothbrush) in one beautifully clean place. Pro tip: adding the widget to your Notification Centre serves up details on your flight number, departure time and flight status.

I recently took a flight from Larnaca to London Heathrow. On checking in on the BA app on my phone I wanted to add a bag as I booked my ticket without one. As soon as I entered check-in I wanted to add my bag and before I knew it it had checked me in without me being able to pay for my bag. Once this has happened you then have to pay an extra €20 at the airport instead of €55 online it costs €75 at the airport. Normally when checking in you have to confirm seat and then enter confirm and checkin this didn’t happen. Unfortunately BA is really lowering its standards and milking its regular customers which is a big mistake. There are so many other companies offering great services.
Wake up BA and sort your app out!!!

Also people traveling with only hand luggage always get allocated the middle seat of the three seats in the middle why?

BA please get your act together

On every update I am hopeful the app will improve and I’ll be able to make the simplest things such as check in. When the app doesn’t throw error messages, additional “security” requirements mean you can only check in with your passport at hand, not on the go. FFS I fly BA at least once a month and am tired to give you information you already have. I am also tired to re-authenticate even though I have a phone with FaceID that allows me to make bank transactions without having to re-type document numbers.

Dear BA, as someone who lives in London, I am stuck with you. Please hire a competent software development team and build an app that will solve your customer’s problems, not create new ones - only for you to sell the solution.

Regarding the error messages, whatever you have going on with Expedia bookings not being able to check in on the phone, please fix it. It’s annoying.
