The airline British Airways was reviewed based on 142 passenger flight reports. On average, there were 3.78 stars rewarded.
British Airways is the largest airline in Britian and the flag carrier of the United Kingdom. The airline was founded in 1935 with the merger between former airlines BOAC and BEA, in combination with a few smaller regional airlines. With an overall passenger volume of 35 million passengers per year, British Airways is the largest operator of the Boeing 737-400 worldwide. Although British Airways has long enjoyed success in the European market, the emergence of low-cost carriers has made the last couple decades quite competitive for the air giant. Nonetheless, Skytrax gave British Airways the coveted World's Best Airline award in 2006. Today the airline is working to replace its long-haul aircraft with next generation Boeing and Airbus models. In this attempt, they have already ordered 50 new aircraft. The company is a founding member of the Oneworld Alliance, through which BA offers over 9000 connecting flights to 680 destinations in 142 countries worldwide. BA has an extensive international flight plan including destinations in almost every continent. BA offers passengers their unique frequent flyer program Executive Club, where one can earn miles and other benefits by flying with BA and their partners.

11.02.2014  More to do for British Airways, Vueling and Iberia

The International Airlines Group (IAG), one of the largest airline groups in Europe, got the year off to a good start with its three brands in January. British Airways, Vueling and Iberia recorded increases in both cargo and passenger traffic. The three airlines, which have been united under the umbrella of the holding company, IAG, for three years now (Vueling Airlines since April, 2013), welcomed 4.9 million passengers in January. This corresponds to a healthy increase of 6.4 per cent compared to the same month last year. Overall, the utilisation of the more than 400 IAG aircraft is now 77.1 per cent, an improvement of 0.4 percent. With this, IAG in London not only disclosed impressive figures but also gave an insight into the power structure of the holding company. Iberia’s Weakness is Vueling’s Strength This insight shows, for example, that Spain’s Iberia continues to have significant deficiencies. Sales have declined significantly, but its sister airline, Vueling, has been able to offset this for IAG. Thus, the Spanish low-cost airline did particularly well during the year, and Vueling should be able to hold this course throughout 2014, even before celebrating its tenth birthday. Slight Increase in Freight Transport Europe’s third largest airline group may, however, also be enjoying rising cargo volumes. Transport performance rose by 0.2 percent and now stands at 432 million tonne-kilometres. In this case, utilisation improved only slightly and remains at around 70 percent. More

04.09.2013  British Airways’ new route from Düsseldorf to London

It looks like an offer for business travellers but is no less interesting for tourists: Effective immediately, the British Airways subsidiary, Cityflyer, offers flights over the English Channel, from Düsseldorf to London. British Airways announced the connection to London in June, and it has been active since the beginning of the month. Now, the Düsseldorf – London City route will be flown 17 times per week. Three of the 17 flights will be on weekdays and are scheduled so that travellers can spend a full working day both in London and in Düsseldorf. The early-morning and evening flights on Saturday and Sunday are ideal for tourists. British Airways uses a Saab 2000 for the flights. This admittedly small, regional airplane with 50 seats is relatively roomy. It is one of the fastest turboprop aircraft ever to be used in civilian traffic and can reach speeds of more than 660 kilometres per hour. Not only is the flight from North Rhine-Westphalia’s capital city to the British metropolis on the Thames rapid, but the London City airport itself is also ideally situated. It is the most central of all of London’s airports. The airport is only a few minutes away from the Docklands, the bustling residential and business district of the British capital. Trains leave the terminal every eight minutes for the city centre. The airline will continue to serve London Heathrow airport from Düsseldorf notwithstanding the new connection, so now there are two routes to London on offer. Other alternatives are offered by Air Berlin which flies from Düsseldorf to Stansted as wells as Lufthansa with the Düsseldorf-Heathrow connection and Easyjet to London-Gatwick. More

14.08.2013  British Airways: From autumn the A380 will be used…

From this autumn British Airways will be using their A380s on long-haul flights between London and Los Angeles as well as Hong Kong. Currently the jet is being tested on the short-haul flights between Heathrow and Frankfurt. From 2014 the airline will also use the world’s largest passenger airline on flights to Johannesburg. British Airways received the first Airbus A380 one month ago. It is currently being tested on the short-haul route between Heathrow and Frankfurt before being used from this autumn on long-haul flights between London and Los Angeles as well as Hong Kong. From February 2013 the British airline will also be using the A380 on flights to Johannesburg. British Airways ordered a total of twelve A380s, which should be delivered by 2016. The plane offers 469 passenger seats. There are 14 seats in First Class, 97 in Business Class, 55 in Premier Economy and 303 in Economy Class. British Airways promoted the connection to South Africa with the A380 in the form of a video: The South African rugby union player Bryan Habana took part in a race against the huge A380. More

10.04.2013  British Airways Awards Major Contract to Airbus

According to media reports, British Airways apparently wishes to purchase about 20 type A350-1000 airplanes from the European aircraft manufacturer, Airbus. The airline usually orders its long-haul aircraft from the competitor, Boeing. Airbus now appears to be facing another major order worth billions. British Airways, previously a traditional Boeing customer, wishes, according to media reports, to purchase about 20 type A350-1000 Airbus aircraft. IAG, the parent company of British Airways and Iberia, wants to spend a total of 5.5 billion euros for the new aircraft. To date, neither company has commented on the rumors. The new type A350-1000 machine should enter into operation in 2017. There are plans for three versions, the largest of which is designed for 350 passengers. The jet is in direct competition with Boeing’s “777X”. Airbus has already recorded large, lucrative orders in the recent past. Last October, Singapore Airlines ordered a total of 25 type A380 and A350 aircraft for approximately 5.8 billion euros. Three other airlines, Indonesia’s no-frills airline Lion Air, Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines, have pushed through orders of around 30 billion euros. More

Environmental impact of British Airways

British Airways strives to reduce the carbon footprint and serve the environment by improving understanding of CO2. This is a topic many airlines already try to understand. To reduce the carbon footprint means to increase the quality of air and the expected impact on the environment would be huge. Through utilization of energy resources British Airlines hope to reduce the well known carbon footprint to help the environment. They hope to do this by better understanding CO2. This is a situation many airlines already attempt to do. The fact of the matter is, by reducing the carbon footprint, an airline can increase air quality.

British Airways Utilize Airline Rankings For Quality Control

British Airways are using a more functional and environmentally friendly aircraft. Along with this new special aircraft comes a great program whose main goal is to make CO2 usage more functional thus reducing the carbon footprint. They hope to make a big impact on the environment through utilization of this energy resource management. Airline rankings are among the systems they hope to incorporate, and this will make CO2 usage easier to understand. The negative effects on the environment will then be greatly reduced. British Airlines are now taking many different steps to ensure quality improvement in the sky and on the ground.

British Airways Plan to Use A to F Classes

The German NGO Atmosfair has created several energy efficiency classes. With these classes, which range from A to F, the entire system will be easier to understand. Through the use of efficiency points, the carbon footprint may be diluted easier, and this will increase the positive impact on the environment. The rank of each airline attempts to make the process much more understandable, and streamline the system for all of those who are involved with the program. These classes will also allow information gatherers to discern each airline's type.
