The flight was smooth and the staff was helpful and informative. However, the entertainment in the exit row is less than adequate and was not functioning properly.

Had never used orbitz before, for great value and easy booking they were excellent!

Sep 10, 2018

I'm concerned that three dishes out of three for the meal service were spicy - 2 curry and 1 tomato-based issues. I have gastrointestinal issues that make this a challenge. Maybe 1 non-spicy option would be good.

BA is always wonderful in my experience except for the cancelled flight . I received a change in time notification but not cancellation.
