“Amazing upgrade”
Review of British Airways


Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

Having checked in 24 hrs before the flight, and again with luggage at the airport, we were totally amazed at being upgraded to business class at boarding control. The service, food and staff were incredible. What a way to travel. Thank you British Airways, what an experience

This was the first time I was able to fly on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner and it was worth it. The view from the window seat was stunning as the windows are much larger than other planes I have flown on. The dimming system for the window was also so much better than a pull down shade. The seats are roomier and the leg room much better—certainly not first class—but oh so much better. On all flights I have had with British Airways the flight crews are top notch and do their job so well. But the highlight was the plane itself. Such an improvement on all other planes. It just felt like a race horse ready to play in the sky. And the entertainment system is quite a few notches up from the usual. You can actually see the screen and hear the movies. Altogether a great flight.

Travelling with children is always challenging but I have to say BA really pulled out the stops for us. Pre-Flight, Cabanas at Heathrow for somewhere for the Kids to relax to the food in the Concorde lounge, it was pretty much perfect.
On board it was even better, the crew are truly exceptional and British Airways greatest asset.

Great flight all round.

Flew business class from Madrid to Heathrow then first class to Seattle. The seats were great, excellent food and service. We would fly them again. This was our second flight on British Airways in first class and both were excellent. Entertainment was great. Good storage outside the cubical as well as inside.
