    I travelled from Dubai to London Heathrow in First class in October 2016. We arrived at around 7:20am at DXB T1 for BA0108, which had a scheduled departure time of 9:20am. Thankfully the entrance we used was very near to BA check-in, which was quiet. We were seen almost straight away - the ...

    Was lucky enough to be upgraded from Club World 16a to First 3k. Aircraft was full. Boarding was a bit of a scrum, First and business were called first but everyone surged forward together and the gate gate staff gave up. Eventually shown to seat by steward and accepted glass of Champagne. ...

    A disappointing experience. I thought BA FIRST to be a rather big end class. It is not, at least compared with the other First Class I have flown. The Concord Lounge at Heathrow was overcrowded and the breakfast was nothing else than the one you get self service at First lounge. It was so full ...

    My wife and I decided that a year of travel splurging was the best way to celebrate our impending significant birthdays. First stop, New York using Avios and Amex Companion vouchers to travel F outbound J return on BA. Given the number of flights to NYC we had no problem finding availability on ...

    My first flight on a BA A380 being a Gold Guest List and lifetime gold member with a long history of flying BA and I was very disappointed. Having experience the 380 on QF, EK, SQ & LH I have to say I was expecting more from BA. This aircraft clearly poses a wonderful opportunity for airlines ...

    This is the return journey of our trip, I've already written up a review on the outbound journey. I would like to say that I am BA staff. I was however travelling on a commercial revenue ticket on this journey and not staff travel. Also I knew none of the crew in the First cabin. Check in: We ...

    Overall a very solid recent experience on BA104 from Dubai to London Heathrow Terminal 5. The flight departed from Gate C9 at Terminal 1, which is a relatively long walk from the British Airways lounge. Ground staff at the gate were polite and welcoming. There was additional security at the ...

    The flight was delayed by 4+ hours owing to a small technical fault, compounded by a catering truck causing some additional damage, so we had an aircraft change. The information flow was now wonderful and we left the Concorde room too early, but there was a member of special services at the gate to ...
