    I feel that First on the A380 feels a bit like being in solitary confinement, the seat shells being so huge. Though I have to admit the amount of space is hard to beat.Very comfortable. Bags took forever to come off.

    I travelled on BA0079 from London Heathrow Terminal 5 to Muscat in March 2018. I travelled in first class. The scheduled departure time was 7:45pm. Because of the poor weather (my flight was during the so-called ‘Beast from the East’), I’d given myself plenty of time to get to the ...

    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 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 ...
