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!

Great app unfriendly agents

I’m waiting to board a flight with BA to LHR and connect with BA 247 to Sao Paulo. The lady that did my checkin was very unfriendly and had the wrong attitude to be in contact with customers (and she is working in the “Business Class” desk! - I think we (customers) should be able to evaluate airport agents instantly upon completion of checkin as we do after calls, after using your app etc. Maybe this would help “shaping” a seemless excellent customer service at BA! Certainly with the high unemployment affecting France, BA could do a better job at recruitment and selection for airport jobs.
