Flyer Reviews of the British Airways


anonymous
Very private. No stepping over others to come in and out of this seat.
[Seat 64K on a Boeing 747-400]


seatlink
Better than some but not the best, no seat reclining in front of you; may have extra legroom; no underseat stowage; traytable in armrest means narrower seat; armrests do not move.
[Seat 1C on a Saab 2000]


seatlink
Better than some but not the best, no seat reclining in front of you; may have extra legroom; no underseat stowage; traytable in armrest means narrower seat; armrests do not move.
[Seat 1B on a Saab 2000]


seatlink
Recommend this seat over others, has extra legroom; no under seat stowage during takeoff and landing; traytable in armrest means narrower seat.
[Seat 2A on a Saab 2000]


seatlink
Pretty good seat all things considered, this exit row seat has extra legroom; the seat in front does not recline; no under seat stowage during takeoff and landing; may be missing an armrest; seat cushion may be very firm.
[Seat 10A on a Saab 2000]


Noel Marsh-Giddings
Standard seat, view of side of engine
[Seat 7F on a Airbus A319]


seatlink
Definitely better seats to sit in, legroom is restricted at this seat; has limited recline; near the lavatory.
[Seat 39B on a Boeing 787-8]


seatlink
Decent seat but has some issues, near the galley.
[Seat 7J on a Boeing 787-9]


seatlink
This is a good seat to choose, has extra legroom; no underseat stowage; traytable in armrest means narrower seat; armrests do not move.
[Seat 9E on a Airbus A321]


seatlink
Not terrible, but not good either, may have limited recline.
