Flight crew does well to get everything settled and up in the air ASAP. Cabin crew attentive to needs. Wonderful touch on Iceland Day to have little pieces of chocolate cake.

Seats aren’t the most comfortable, but then whose seats in economy class are comfortable? Also, some thought should be given to NOT letting economy seats recline; the impact to the passenger behind the seat is more harmful than the benefit to the “recliner”.

In flight entertainment was good

Friend payed for additional luggage via phone call with Iceland Air but when we arrived the payment wasnt on file when we checked in. Even with a payment receipt for their luggage it was a hassle to get the airline to accept the luggage. Thought we were going to miss out flight but made it with little time to spare.

I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight.

Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks

I last traveled on British Airways in May of last year (2015) and the food was beyond dreadful. Therefore I was very pleasantly surprised that there has been a huge improvement. They were very generous with the drinks and the food was plentiful and quite a reasonable standard for airline food (they gave two full meals from San Francisco to London, whereas most airlines give one meal and one snack on that route). They actually checked us in on the earlier side, we took off very promptly and got to London early. It was nice to be on time for a change - so often I find airlines run a bit late. Staff were all pleasant and helpful. Pilot's messages were pleasant, friendly and even a bit informative.

Web check-in ahead of time was a total disaster. I got an email telling me I could check in 36 hours early and "secure a good seat" but neither of the 2 sets of codes they provided in the email would work because it was all about Finnair but actually the flight was being run by British Airways. I spent about 30 minutes on the 'phone trying to get the appropriate sequence of numbers and letters to enter so as to check in and get a good seat - still nothing worked. This was at 5:45am - I regretted the time spent when I could have gone back to sleep. My daughter later spent a further 90 minutes trying to figure it out, only to be told finally that our only option was to get to the airport early and check n there which was what we did. It was beyond irksome. Please note, if the airline actually flying is different fro the booking airline, the locator number for check n will be DIFFERENT and needs to be provided to the customer to avoid a great deal of hassle and confusion. We gt particularly unlucky because BA computers had a glitch that day but the general point still stands.

The configuration of the seats are really awkward. Seems very interesting at a glance, but not so nice when you have to sit in it for 10 hours. The business class seats are very narrow. I'm pretty petite so it was okay for me, but I think an average or bigger than average person would have a hard time turning at all while the seat is in lie flat position. I had a window seat which gives you more privacy as long as you have the divider up between you and the passenger next to you. You are really arm length away from each other though. And! You can't have the divider down the entire time because they serve your meals by passing it over to you across your neighbor through the divider. The divider is also required to be down during taxi, take off and landing. So, I'd imagine it to be very awkward if you're sitting next to a total stranger. You also have to straddle over someone's legs if you want to get out of your seat to the bathroom if you have window seats.

I'm not sure what makes this business class special "Polaris" . Unlike planes I often take to Asia, there was no privacy and especially no room to put "stuff" without putting seat up, unbuckling, etc. I realize that I should have paid attention to the type of plane. Boarding was chaotic; could not distinguish my boarding line. PA system unusually bad; could not hear or understand any of Capt's announcements.

They put me on a flight via Newark instead that is 3 hours later. At Newark, the connection to London is 10 hours late!! After taking off, the plane goes for 2 hours before landing back in Newark because of technical issue!!!!!!!! Changed flight, and arrived in London after 2 days spent in plane/airport !!!!!!!!!

The food, the staff and the free movie on the airplane.

My American partner's passport expires 2 months after our return to the US. Unfortunately, the French issued a year ago the following rule: to enter France, the foreign passport must not expire at least 3 months after the return date. British Airways let us fly to London, explaining this to us, how it would be on us if there were problems further down, and that we would have to get our luggage in London. We chose to fly thinking it would be OK, we had listened to an online person who had had the same problem and the French later told him they would have let him in, also I am myself a dual citizen of France and the US, plus I am autistic, an invisible disability (in my case) that makes it impossible for me to travel alone. I usually do not even say it since not much is understood -by those who do not have it- on how to accommodate it However in London BA did not allow my partner to go on. Due to the fact yesterday was Easter Monday, the American consulate in London was closed. We have spent the night in a nearby motel and now, the next day, I am waiting alone back at the airport with our 2 large suitcases while my partner is at the American consulate. We are poor, do not have phone, currency or charger for England, and I do not do well with stress, so it is difficult. Now we cannot easily reach one another. We hope to be able to fly on a standby basis (that's what BA told us we could hopefully do) later today. Sorry for this long letter, I hope it does not bore whoever reads it (if it is even read :).

Flight crew does well to get everything settled and up in the air ASAP. Cabin crew attentive to needs. Wonderful touch on Iceland Day to have little pieces of chocolate cake.

Seats aren’t the most comfortable, but then whose seats in economy class are comfortable? Also, some thought should be given to NOT letting economy seats recline; the impact to the passenger behind the seat is more harmful than the benefit to the “recliner”.

The cheap price of the flight.

Flight wasn't comfortable, non legroom an no acces to entertainment.

Slightly more leg room on premium economy

Terrible entertainment options. Seats were old. Luftanza is far far better for premium economy. On this flight it was hard to determine the difference between economy and premium economy

Flat bed was narrow but comfortable. Attendants plentiful & attentive.

I'm not sure what makes this business class special "Polaris" . Unlike planes I often take to Asia, there was no privacy and especially no room to put "stuff" without putting seat up, unbuckling, etc. I realize that I should have paid attention to the type of plane. Boarding was chaotic; could not distinguish my boarding line. PA system unusually bad; could not hear or understand any of Capt's announcements.

Virgin Atlantic continues to give great service. Their lounges are way above all other airline lounges. It is difficult to get well prepared and fresh fish in lounges, but Virgin Atlantic knows how to do it.

Good entertainment, food and in-flight crew

Because this flight was delayed it was a miracle (involving running til my throat literally bled) that I made my connection. Ground crew could not have been less helpful - even to my friend who they knew was trying to get home to attend a family funeral.

I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight.

Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks

A large selection of movies, shows and music to choose from. Flight crews were attentive and friendly.

The narrow space between each rows for passengers to move from their seats.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
