Editors’ Notes

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 Center serves up details on your flight number, departure time and flight status.

Love British Airways

My husband and I flew back from London to Nashville to end our honeymoon in Europe. We were seated comfortably in the back at row 40 and we would have been fine in economy since the aircraft is so clean and well kept and the attendants are very sweet. One asked us about our visit and we said we and on our way back from our honeymoon and he offered to upgrade us to seats 11 K and 11 J in economy plus and that was so wonderful! He said “it’s a bit easier seating on a honeymoon in those seats, don’t you think” . We were given champagne and food was great, I enjoyed this airline so much. Quite a lot different from our American Airlines we flew to London from the start. The plane smelled, I couldn’t eat the food it was pretty poor, and the microwaved hot pocket made my stomach turn. But the people were nice on American too, I would just avoid the airline because of its poor accommodations and the shape the airplane is in makes for an uncomfortable 8 hours of flying...
I don’t know why people review this airline as anything but great, friendly and warm service, clean plane, great selection for food and entertainment. If you’re sweet and polite and reasonable, and honest you’ll find you get better interactions from people no matter what airline. Love British airlines!

Good, but..

1. Could do with a way to book award flights using Avios.
2. Desperately needs an option to add the Executive Club card to Passbook. BA employees at lounges usually can’t scan the barcode off the small card that displays in the app because either a) the barcode doesn’t show or b) when it does show, it’s grainy.
3. The “retain (insert BAEC tier here)” never matches the website. Apparently to retain silver, I need 230 more tier points and 0 of 4 flights have been completed. The “or” says 3 of 50 eligible flights have been completed. The website correctly states I need 230 more tier points and 1 more flight (it shows 3 of 4 flights have been completed).
4. Progress to the next tier could be a nice addition to the app along with what I need to retain the BAEC tier I’m in.
5. Getting to the seat selection page is a ballache. You click select seats and it takes you to the manage booking page, click select seats there and it’ll take you back to the same page. You have to select the flight within manage my booking to find select seats in the drop down under a particular flight (even though you already did that in the app under a particular flight before it sent you to the browser), and then choose them there. All the while, the top of the screen above the mini browser says “select seats”... I could be adding my passport number or selecting a meal in that and it’ll still say “select seats” up the top...
