Further to my earlier review about British Airways I omitted to mention one very strong positive about this airline and that is the 23 kilos luggage allowance – a real benefit and so different from the budget airlines when one is permanently on edge in case one has exceeded the allowance – for this reason alone I will never fly with Ryanair again. However the time changes are a problem. I had occasion to ring British Airways yesterday in order to change the time of a return flight after they had brought it forward by two hours, thus not allowing me sufficient time to get to the airport without incurring a 100 euro taxi fare. The cost of rescheduling was £25.40, although the airline was unable to give me reassurance that the flight would not be rescheduled to an earlier time. Fingers crossed.

This has been a problem with earlier flights I have made with British Airways although previously it had not caused me so much disruption. However, I have to say that on the positive side, the 23 kilos luggage allowance is a definite bonus!

    I sympathise. These changes of time are a real problem - it has happened to me more than once. It is one of the reasons I hesitate to use British Airways, as an hour either way can make all the difference with regard to connections etc. I don't think they realise the disruption and inconvenience (not to mention extra expense!) that these flight changes can cause.

    We recently travelled to Athens on our first flight with British Airways. The times of the flights were changed both ways; brought forward on the way out (thank goodness we were early!) and later coming back - both times without explanation or apology. The return flight made it necessary to stay over before going home ... luckily, one of our boys lives near so we had a bed for the night, which could otherwise have proved expensive.
